Long road ahead for Treu as sevens charges disappoint

09 December 2013, 10:39

Nairobi- Even Paul Treu himself would not have fathomed his side being walloped 52-5 by Fiji.

On the evidence of what transpired in Port Elizabeth over the weekend, it will take a while for the Kenya sevens team to get firing under Treu and his expensive group of staff.

They were well beaten by the big sides they faced over the weekend, falling to eventual champions South Africa in the group stages,  easily to New Zealand in the Cup quarters and then the rout by six man Fiji in the plate semis.

Yes, six man Fiji.

It once again meant that they collected just ten points and are way off the pace set last season under Mike Friday at a similar stage.

" It will need time and we will be patient, captain Andrew Amonde said, trying to save some face after the humiliating loss to Fiji.

" There is a new system we are developing that will come to the fore soon. We will be fine.

Even though Treu's record suggests he is a top coach, it still baffles why so many mistakes are being made in a team that is not much changed from the last couple of years.

That will be Treu's worry, as he prepares the side for 2014 a year which many will be expecting better of, considering what has been seen thus far.
